Preface

Delaware County Community College (DCCC) and Arcadia University (AU) enter into this Dual Admission and Core-to-Core Transfer Agreement to facilitate the transfer of DCCC students to AU. This agreement applies to both full-time and part-time undergraduate students.

Dual Admission
Under the Dual Admission Transfer Agreement, DCCC students will be guaranteed admission into AU with third year (junior) status at AU on the condition that they:

  • Graduate from DCCC with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5*; Please see Appendix A for a list of majors included in this agreement;
  • Enroll at AU within one year of DCCC graduation; 
  • Do not attend another institution of higher education between the time they graduate from DCCC and enroll at AU;
  • Complete a "Dual Admission lntent to Enroll" form at the time of admission to DCCC, or no later than when they have completed 30 college transferable credits from all colleges/universities attended;
  • Satisfy all other regular AU admissions requirements;
  • Receive a grade of "C-" or better. Only grades with a"C-" or higher will transfer to AU; and
  • AU requires matriculated students to complete 50% of their major courses at the University. AU will accept a maximum of 75 credits from a 2-year college and 90 credits from a 4-year college. Students should be aware that not all credits will be applied towards their major at AU.

A fulI-time student admitted with third year (junior) status to AU will be able to complete a Bachelor's degree at AU within four regular semesters** provided the student completes the
appropriate Associate Degree program at DCCC and completes and appropriately sequences his/her remaining course work at AU.

* Certain majors may require higher GPAs (for example, Education 3.0, Pre-PA and Pre-PT 3.2 for assured admission).
** Except for students enrolled in the BFA in Acting, Art Education or Studio Art or BA in Biology with a concentration in Pre-PA or Pre-PT, as these programs may take more than 4 semesters.

Core-to-Core
AU agrees to accept the General Education embedded in DCCC's Associate in Arts (A.A.) and Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees as meeting all the requirements of its undergraduate General Education requirements, except for the Global Connections Experience and Reflection as well as the Senior Capstone Course.*** This Core-to-Core Agreement applies to all DCCC A.A. and A.S. graduates with majors listed in Appendix A and is not limited to students who participate in the Dual Admission agreement.

This Dual Admission and Core-to-Core Transfer Agreement becomes effective on May 1, 2011. To facilitate the transfer of DCCC graduates to AU in accordance with the foregoing guarantee, the parties agree to the following:

Obligations of Arcadia University
1. To invite DCCC students to an informational meeting with AU faculty and staff on a regular basis at both DCCC and AU in order to facilitate smooth curricular and co-curricular
integration to AU.

2. To send an AU letter of admission to all DCCC students who complete a "Dual Admission Intent to Enroll" form and AU application in accordance with the expectations stated in the Preface of this agreement and who meet the conditions set forth in the Preface. This offer of admission is typically sent the semester before the students plan to matriculate. Students must confirm their intention to matriculate at AU by submitting a deposit by May 1st for the fall semester, and by December 1st for the spring semester, and satisfy all other regular AU admissions requirements. DCCC students who complete a "Dual Admission Intent to Enroll" form will be governed by the AU degree requirements in effect at the time of signing the "Dual Admission Intent to Enroll" form.

3. To waive the application fee for students who enroll at AU pursuant to this Agreement. 

4. To award academic scholarships to all qualified students admitted to AU pursuant to this Agreement. Full-time AU students (enrolled in 12 or more credits a semester) with a 3.0 - 3.19 final DCCC GPA will receive a minimum of $7,500 scholarship; full-time students with a 3.2 - 3.49 final DCCC GPA will receive a minimm of $9,000 scholarship; and fuIl-time
students with a 3.5 - 4.0 will receive a minimum of $14,000 scholarship. Students with a 3.5 - 4.0 cumulative GPA will also be eligible to receive a $5,000/yr Partner Scholarship. Part-time students (enrolled in 6 to 11 credits a semester) with a final DCCC GPA of 3.0 or higher will receive a $500 scholarship. All scholarships may be renewed each year contingent upon the students remaining in good academic standing at AU. Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA to remain in good standing. Students are also eligible for need-based financial aid and other types of financial aid. DCCC students admitted under the agreement will receive full consideration for all AU financial aid. 

5. To ensure these students will be provided with AU financial aid information and receive full consideration for AU financial aid upon matriculation at AU. 

6. To support a Core-to-Core articulation agreement that allows the DCCC A. A. or A.S. degree to fuIfill all AU General Education requirements, except for the Global Connections Experience and Reflection as well as the Senior Capstone Course.*** Eligible DCCC graduates enrolling at AU will be identified upon admission to AU, and the fact that they have satisfied AU General Education requirements by Core-to-Core transfer will be noted on all pertinent AU student records.

7. To accept Core-to-Core transfers as satisfying all the requirements of the AU General Education curriculum, except for those noted above, to be taken at AU. Core-to-Core
transfer does not alter the requirements of the student's major field of study or its admissions standard as identified in the AU catalog published in the year the student signed the
agreement.

8. DCCC graduates entering AU under the terms of this agreement go through the AU normal transfer admissions process and therefore must meet all applicable AU requirements and
deadlines pertaining to application for admission, orientation and registration, and payment of tuition and fees. They will abide by the policies and procedures, and any revisions
thereof, that apply to all AU students.

9. To continue working with DCCC on program-to-program curriculum articulation agreements that specify for DCCC transfer students the DCCC courses that satisfy major
requirements needed for degree completion at AU.

***In the case where the student does not earn a "B" or better in English Composition I, a placement exam will be administered. The results will determine if an additional writing class is required.

Obligations of Delaware County Community College
To publicize this Agreement to prospective students in its promotional literature, to make special arrangements for AU recruiters and advisors to visit DCCC, and to inform qualified students matriculating at DCCC of the opportunity for Dual Admission and Core-to-Core transfer to AU under the terms of this Agreement.

Joint Obligations
1. Consult with each other through appropriate channels prior to implementing major changes in policy or curricula that directly affect students transferring under the terms of this
Agreement, and keep each other informed of any other changes of policy or curricula that affect those students. Both AU and DCCC will review this Agreement annually and make
any changes upon mutual agreement, as needed. Such changes will become effective when both DCCC and AU sign the revised document.

2. Collaborate in providing students with information and academic advising about this agreement, AU's academic requirements, and the process of transferring to AU.

3. DCCC and AU jointly agree to develop and implement advertising and promotional efforts to communicate the benefits of Dual Admission and Core-to-Core transfer.

4. Each institution will designate a representative or representatives who will coordinate the Dual Admission and Core-to-Core Transfer Agreement between the two institutions.

5. Exchange data and documents annually that will contribute to the maintenance and improvement of this Dual Admission and Core-to-Core arrangement, enhance the transfer process and promote effective cooperation between institutions. The institution(s) will exchange data only after obtaining appropriate permission from the students as indicated on the Dual Admissions Intent to Enroll form.

6. Facilitate and support consultation and collaboration between their faculties related to this agreement, General Education, degree requirements. and other academic matters.

7. To provide direct links between AU and DCCC websites. 

Revision, Renewal and Termination of this Agreement
The AU Assistant Provost for Special Projects and DCCC's Provost Office, or their designates, are responsible for identifying and communicating to each other, changes in the policies or requirements of their respective institutions that affect this Agreement. 

This Agreement will be in effect as of the date of its signing, for students entering AU on or after May 1, 2011. It will be reviewed annually by the appropriate parties at each institution, and will be renewed automatically until superseded by a new Agreement or formally terminated.
